    I noticed a while back that my emergency brake cable is resting under the drive shaft and it is half way eaten through. I don't see how to reroute the cable, surely this isn't how Ford designed this! Are cables still available?

    Thanks!

    My parking brake cable runs below the driveshaft but does not even come close to touching it. Your Maverick does not appear to be overly lifted in the rear thus causing an exaggerated driveshaft angle and therefore cable interference? :huh:

    Melvin's carries cables.

    Here is how it should look. It is not touching the exhaust.
